TRYING TO BE TIME EFFICIENT DURING YOUR IIT JEE
WE ARE UNABLE TO STAY CALM AFTER READING THESE TIME EFFICIENT TECHNIQUES
IIT JEE is one of the most competitive exams of the country, and you surely don’t want to end up in a different sack. It is important for a student like you to be able to work effectively and use your time efficiently so that you could reach that desired spot.
Working effectively and efficiently are often misunderstood, though, they are quite similar in reading, they are different in their meanings.
Effectivity comes when you complete the desired or assigned a task with utmost focus and dedication. It is about doing the right things.
Efficiency can be distinguished as you do the task with minimum wastage or loss, of time, or resources. It is about doing things in a rightful manner.
Being a student is hard, we know. So much is expected out of you in so less time. It is important to be time efficient. We all have been through those pressure phases in our life at some point.
What really needs to be kept in mind is to manage your time and studies so you achieve the maximum in a short span.
Time efficiency is the key to any success.
Are you often occupied with these random thoughts of doing a great job, without wasting much of your time? Are you in a need of knowing how much break is ideal break time for you? Or how many hours sitting do toppers give in to their IIT JEE exams? How to be time efficient?
A proper plan will be laid out in this article to help you get hold of your results.
Well, my first advice would be, try to adjust your other tasks in your break time. If you have to be really time efficient, you will be required to do more of what you like, and less of what you can’t concentrate on.
Do your chores of bathing, relaxing or eating during your study breaks; in this way, you will be more time efficient and you will have nothing to regret.
Don’t waste your time procrastinating about the exams or after you get a job etc. You will need to be there to do that, and for that, you will have to study now.
Remember one thing, your brain might be same as your class topper, it just needs to be worked on. Some students know the right techniques that help them learn easily and quickly. Some know how to frame answers in the right manner, while some are born smart.
Time efficiency does not come until you plan it.
Find out a few things about yourself before making a time table or schedule for your studies.
Know what time of the day is best suited for you, that is, figure out the time when you can completely concentrate without any hiccups or distractions. If it is the night time, do it right.
If it is in the morning that you feel the freshest, arrange your studies in that manner.
Plan proper time engagements to build focus and strategize your lessons accordingly. Just remember to be time efficient. It does not matter if you are able to give only 1 hour to your physics or maths till you know what you are doing and you are doing it effectively.
We can conclude that QUALITY MATTERS MORE THAN QUANTITY.
Initiate with small sittings and small breaks, this time efficient strategy will help you concentrate better.
Gradually increase the timing of your study sessions, try sitting for a longer time and keeping focus.
Create a to- do list and prioritize studies over everything else.
Planning and optimising in advance will save your time, making you time efficient and restrain you from unnecessary activities.
Do not indulge in useless activities, be time efficient; keep your mind focussed and avoid multitasking. Do one thing, learn it, make notes, revise it, do it well.
I am jotting down some crux points to help you get a clearer idea of being time efficient:
- FOCUS ON YOUR PRESENT
Stop dreaming much about your future. Turn your focus to what is in the present. Do well in your next test; only that will help you achieve the future success.
- MAKE NOTES
One thing you should definitely do is make notes. This may be time consuming for a couple of times, but believe me, once you are in a habit, this will save you from multiple time consuming deals. You should summarise the total highlights of a topic in a few pages which are easily accessible so you could revise them in hurry.
- CONCENTRATE ON THINGS IN HAND
Concentrate on what lies next. Prioritize what is important for the present, focus on adding great work to your curriculum. Be time efficient and do not waste time on wasteful activities.
- SET GOALS
This is another important step; set your daily goals, know what you aim to achieve and mentally prepare yourself for each task. Keep aside all your distractions, give every task proper space in your day.
- QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
Remember to not over do on the study part. Quality matters. Quantity is not that important when it comes to keeping focus. Make sure what you read, you read it with full determination.
- DO NOT MULTITASK
One bad thing to do to yourself is doing many things simultaneously.
Keep aside that cell phone or rather keep it on silent somewhere away from you. There’s no need to read all words in a dictionary or check your emails when you study. This is bad because you will not be time efficient, further, you will commit unnecessary mistakes and waste more time in correcting them later.
- STUDY IN SPRINTS
It is advisable to study for a shorter duration but with utmost concentration and speed. Take breaks whenever needed but do not waste time. Study in spans of half an hour and take 5-10 minutes of break, to freshen up and increase your concentration.
- MATCH GOALS WITH ACHIEVEMENTS
Keep a track of the activities, know where you waste time and try avoiding those unnecessary tasks. Time efficiency comes when your standards match with your reality. Do this check every day to keep a track of your schedule.
